The First Central Baptist Church of Staten Island just held their Church Community Cookout and Nurse Ministry Health Fair. This was their annual event where they serve the community free food, with lots of fun for the kids with water slides.

Several of their community partners were present: Staten Island University Hospital gave health screenings for A1C and blood pressure, Community Health Action was out for HIV testing, the Mt. Sinai Hospital mobile mammogram van gave mammograms, and the blood bank van was taking blood donations.
